Teacher Librarian : Ms. Carissa Burkhart
Ms. Burkhart is delighted to bring the joy of reading our youngest students. She builds literacy by introducing children to literature during storytime and planned lessons, collaborating with classroom teachers to augment classroom experience, and teaching library skills to emerging and new readers.

Before following her husband to Saudi Arabia from the United States, she was a special librarian in the non-profit space supporting advancement offices both as an employee and as a consultant in her own business.
